A correction to 4, she only does that part time. By day she's a successful architect! With supersonic hearing to hear a kid's cry for help! It's amazing with that kind of hearing she even HAS a job, for wouldn't that sort of trait make her busy all the time?


I'm surprised Maryz hasn't jumped into this conversation yet.. :)

It just looked to me like she heard the kid downstairs or something.

I just got home from a day in the minivan . . . Doesn't Guardiana make parents look bad and neglectful? Why do kids need a superheroine to tell them commonsense safety things a that a parent should? In the seventies, women were entering the workforce in droves. Maybe this films reflects the anxiety that people felt about children coming home to empty houses. Guardiana is a baby-sitter who can be almost everyplace at the same time. And her services are free! Her free-lance architecture business is going to suffer, though. I don't see her meeting her deadlines if she constantly has to rescue children. In that sense, she's got a lot in common with working moms.

But as an architect, she'll design the safest buildings ever! Sure, some rogue terrorist may bomb the basement and fly hijacked aircraft into them, but those evil doers will just get the three finger salute!
